The aim of this project was the conversion of the existing building into a cultural and social centre, which would provide it with institutional representation. The outset was a dark, half-buried building that lacked quality spaces, placed at the interior of a block in Girona. The vast remodelling program included a 180-seat auditorium, an exhibition room, a computer room and an administrative area, among other spaces.

Brunnenstrasse 9 in Berlin, Germany by Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

The house on Brunnenstrasse 9 is an extension of the foundations of a building “ruin” that was the result of a bad investment in the ’90s. The existing consisted of the cellar walls towards the neighboring house, the street and the courtyard, and a cellar ceiling, with exception of the parts of the lift and the drive-through; the steel reinforcement of the incomplete building protruded from the street level. The found structure was not only included but was even further developed in the new building. The angles of sun rays determine the volume of the attic floor, maximizing the light exposure of the building in the back.

Antivilla in Potsdam (Krampnitz), Germany by Brandlhuber

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Brandlhuber

While at the former – first prussian, then nazi and finally soviet – barracks in Krampnitz nearby Potsdam war films such as „Enemy At The Gates“ or „Inglourious Basterds“ were shoot, they also were the setting of another drama that newspapers simply called „Krampnitz Affair“. The State of Brandenburg tried to cancel the sale of the Krampnitz Barracks when discussions about the too low sale’s amount started. A noisy public arguement between politicians and the investors who intended a large scale housing project followed and is without a decision so far.

Talstation in Baiersbronn, Germany by Partnerundpartner-architekten

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: Partnerundpartner-architekten

The Talstation’s main features are characterized strongly by its geographic situation between the stream and the road. Driving south-west from Baiersbronn, the valley opens up and the Talstation is located on one of the elevated fields. Just like a stone or a piece of drift wood, the environment seems to have left its mark. Towards the south the building opens widely by using a deeply-placed post and beam facade forming a roofed terrace. The fully-glassed front of the structure offers a view of the amazing panorama of the valley, soon also of the WaldLoft Hotel which will be situated 220 metres higher, at 770 metres.
